NLA National Conference 2013



The NLA National Conference is a chance for landlords to come together and discuss the issues affecting the private-rented sector, question industry experts and learn the latest on government policy.

This year the conference will take place in Swansea, South Wales, on Wednesday 20th November. We are pleased to be orgainsing the event in conjunction with the City and County of Swansea.

In keeping with tradition it will focus on policy, business and the practical side of letting. Themes this year will include:

Housing Reform in Wales

The Welsh Government will be bringing forward legislation in Autumn 2013 in relation to the private-rented sector (PRS). In its White Paper published in 2012 the Welsh Government proposed a more robust framework for landlords including a national register and compulsory accreditation. The Welsh Government believes that the proposals they have put forward will stimulate the economy, support job creation and stablise the housing sector.

While this legislation will apply to Wales only, many commentators anticipate that similar legislation is likely to be introduced into England if a Labour Government is elected in the future.

How to get the best return from your investment

We look at how landlords can make the best return on their investment in the current economic climate and offer informed predictions for the future.

Self-regulation or statutory regulation?

Our panel of experts wil discuss the merits of self-regulation (accreditation) and how this can benefit landlords and tenants directly.

The future of the PRS in Great Britain

There are now 3 different approaches to the private-rented sector in Great Britain, not taking into account differences at a local authority level. Representatives from Scotland, Wales and England will explain the approach they have taken and what this means for landlords.

This event has now taken place. For all conference enquiries please contact:
